        THE SOVEREIGN GUIDE: A TALE OF EDEN ..

      Los Angeles: Geo. Rice & Sons, 1898.. Small octavo, pp. [1-8] [1-7] 8-130 [131-136: blank] [note: first four and last three leaves are banks with first two and last two leaves used as free endpapers and paste-downs], inserted frontispiece (photographic portrait of the author), original black cloth, front panel stamped in gold. First edition. A short utopian lost race novel of a journey by submarine to a subterranean world where a pallid race has attained social and technological perfection.

        Children of the Mist. A Novel.

Blackmore in pencil, "Gone to live at 'Cosdonne [Phillpott's Devon house], Torquay' Nov 7 1898", with a pencilled exclamation mark in Blackmore's hand to the margin of p. 4.

        TALES OF UNREST.

      London:: Fisher Unwin,. 1898.. First edition. His first short-story collection. In first-issue binding of dark-green cloth with page top edges gilt and other edges untrimmed (versus plain top edge and other edges rough-trimmed). This copy with the attractive, armorial blind-stamp of "Boot's Book-lover's Library" to bottom front corner of the cover. "Boot's" was a popular members-only lending library of the day. "The extremely simple system of exchange, the absence of irritating rules, and the perfect service given to Members, make this the best Circulating Library in the Kingdom," or so proclaimed their 1903 catalog, humbly entitled, MODERN ENGLISH LITERATURE: A SELECTION OF THE BEST KNOWN WORKS CIRCULATED, WITH WHICH IS EMBODIED A GUIDE TO POPULAR WORKS OF FICTION. Small tears and general shelfwear to spine ends, and bottom front corner with blind-stamp appears to have been used as a coaster at some point. Still, good to about very good. .

        Handgearbeitete Möbel / Deutsche Werkstätten für Handwerkskunst.

      25,5 x 21,5 cm. 229 Seiten (überwiegend fotogr. Tafeln). Orig.-Halbleinenband. *Erste Ausgabe des Musterbuches für die Designmöbel der legendären deutschen Werkstätten in Hellerau. Die Möbelabteilung produzierte unter der Federführung des Designers Richard Riemerschmid sogenannte "Reformmöbel": Alle Möbel wurden von zeitgenössischen Designern konzipiert, die überwiegende Zahl der vorgestellten Möbel sind Entwürfe von Riemerschmid selbst. - Die Firmengründung "Dresdner Werkstätten für Handwerkskunst" erfolgte 1898, bereits 1909 wurde der Grundstein für das Fabrikgebäude im heutigen Dresden-Hellerau mit 350 Arbeitern gelegt. Die Deutschen Werkstätten waren im Zuge der Reformbewegung des Kunstgewerbes in Deutschland der bedeutendste Möbelhersteller Dresdens. Sie gehörten zu den Gründungsmitgliedern des Deutschen Werkbundes. Der Durchbruch gelang mit dem ab 1903 von Riemerschmid entwickelten Konzept der sogenannten "Maschinenmöbel". Dies waren Möbel in ästhetischer wie praktischer Form und Proportion für den modernen Haushalt der Mittelschicht. Sie waren von hoher Qualität bezüglich Material und Fertigung, aber zugleich auch konzipiert für eine effiziente und kombinierbare Produktion mit Maschinen. Das Produkt war eine große Palette Möbel für Wohn- und Schlafzimmer von hoher Qualität und mit modernem Design zu einem bezahlbaren Preis. - Vorliegend der recht seltene erste Katalog bzw. Musterbuch der Möbelabteilung der Werkstätte Hellerau in der ersten Auflage (1910 und 1912 erschienen eine 2. und 3. Auflage). Die Werkstätte Hellerau existiert bis heute als Spezialfirma im hochwertigen Innenausbau. - Frontdeckel etwas fleckig, 2 Seiten mit kleinen Anstreichungen, ansonsten sauber und gut erhalten.

Its recorded history goes back only some seventy years. One day in 1894......a child in Sarajevo came to the Jewish communal infant-school bearing an old Hebrew service book under his arm. His father had recently died leaving the family in straitened circumstances and they needed to realise what was possible from the sale of the volume ...... it passed to the Bosnian National Museum. The discovery soon attracted the attention of the eminent scholars and art-historians of Vienna. ........A ..... magnifient publication was issued before long, devoted to the description and consideration of this newly-found treasure. This was the product of collaboration between the Jewish liturgical expert Heinrich Muller and the non-Jewish art-historian Julius von Schlosser, their own work being supplemented by a most impoprtant excursus on medieval Jewish illuminated manuscripts generally, by the Budapest scholar-collector David Kaufmann, the only person who had hitherto studied the subject systematically\".

        C. 1898 Group of 5 Large-Format Albumen Photographs of the USS Yankee - Portside and Underway

      Brooklyn New York: Muller Marine Photographer, 1898. Group includes 3 images of the ship at dockside, with sailors and crew, harbor equipment, some ladies visiting, a candid look at the crew and visitors, one with a view of the debarkation of a very fancy launch with whom appears to be the recently-elected Mayor Robert Van Wyck (1847-1918) tipping his bowler to a Navy man's salute - we speculate perhaps these taken at the time when the ship was renamed and commissioned at New York on 14 April 1898 under the helm of Commander Willard H. Brownson (Dictionary of American Naval Fighting Ships); and 2 images of the ship while moving off to sea, one image having a bit of a view of city buildings in the background; one of the docked images with clear lettering of the ship's name across her port beam; with the small stamp of the Muller Marine Photographer 714 Monroe Street Brooklyn on back of one of the mount cards; photographs approx. 8" x 10" image size, with the mounts, 11" x 14"; "Spanish American War" written in a modern hand on back of one; little waviness to cards, some fading of imagery in one; one image with 1" rub-abrasion; some spottiness to cards; images in very good condition overall and a nice look at this United States Navy cruiser-transport which saw much action in the Spanish American War, on fighting cable-cutting escort, on blockade duty, chasing and engaging in battle with runners, dispatch delivery and ammunition & troop transport, a very active ship. . Photographic Mount Cards. Very Good.
